BTW CC, when I did a closeup of your quilt, I noticed a lovely diamond "something" behind it, would love to see that up front and center, please.

I take my hat off to all of you.  I don't know how you get so much done.  I have a hard enough time just trying to get the blocks done each week for the LUS and Dear Jane.  I know I am a little slower because I do everything by hand, but I must be slower than I thought.  Great job in getting things done.  Today I am working on Dear Jane blocks.  If I sm lucky I might get two done, but I am hoping for three.

I am not as quick as everyone else either.  I am definitely not keeping up with the DJ, I just keep plugging along.

Quilt, have fun, spend less time worrying if it is perfect.

Thea, thanks so much! That is what I needed. I was missing the Fabric 9 strips. They had come out of the baggie and were in the bottom of the tote. Now that I have all the strips I even found my note that said what each one is. The lesson here is to finish things in a timely manner and DON'T misplace the directions! ROFLOL, like that is going to happen. A huge thank you to everyone who helped me.

I had to go back and look to see what you meant. I think you must be looking at Sprout's Star. there's a picture of it in my gallery, I think. 

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

I think it's interesting how often I see see posts from people thinking everyone else is making faster progress then they are. Are we running a race? No one gave me that memo!!  

I sometimes go months without so much as a stitch, and then I get my zen in it's groove and take off like s shot for a little bit. In reality is just a mad rush of activity on a lot of UFO's, but it looks impressive. LOL

Today I worked some more on the batik star I started on while I was stalled on Jr's star. DS1 found a great mossy green geometric batik that really works well for the background (not at all what I was envisioning when I started that project!) and I managed to get the stting pieced cut and put in.  DD says it looks very 'elf-ish' now so we've decided to call it the Rivendell Star.

That does make me feel better. I sometimes will work on several quilts at one time, then do nothing for a long time.

You're quite right CC.  What looks like great activity in progress is just finishing up (or trying to finish) those UFO's from so long ago,  I'm behind on everything else, especially Dear Jane and Garden Party,  I'll try to post the next assignment in the LUS sampler, but I don't thing I'll have any examples to go along with them.

I owe everyone an apology to.  I did not mean anything by the comments except to say I was happy with everyones progress.  I did mean to upset or offend anyone.

Jeanette, I doubt that anyone was offended. We all have productive times and the not so productive times. I am working on a quilt I started in 2010. I got distracted with other things and am just now getting back to it. Now, If I had to do hand sewing I would probably take alll year to finish a potholder. I admire those who can do it, but it is just not for me. I wish I had kept up with embroidery but my eyes just can't handle it anymore.  So don't worry about fast or slow, just enjoy the process.

Hey, Jeanette, you're not alone - I don't feel like I do much either. Of course, my sewing has been all but on hold as DH and I had our basement remodeled due to flood damage & my sewing stuff was scattered around the house.  I've got my space set up again but I don't sew or quilt every day & I go through times where I don't touch a thing & other times where I feel like I'm sewing obsessed! LOL.  Just have fun with it :-)

No Jeanette you are not alone. Sometimes I would rather read (my first love) than turn on the sewing machine. That's how I get behind, and then I get the sewing bug and off I go. I'm still working on the Farmers Wife blocks we started a couple of years ago. We all just do what we can or want to. No big rush. I don't think anyone is offended, not me for sure.

Thank you Pat, Eileen and Bonita.  I really meant it in a light hearted way.

I think any finished post is just that. Some may be years or even decades in the making after they were started. I  used to have piles of UFO's and would have binges when I might finish half a dozen items before I went back to cutting or piecing. I have become more of a one project at a time person so that should I take a long hiatus I won't have to scratch my head too hard trying to figure out what I was actually doing or intending to do. In my eyes, any finish shows dedication and needs to be noted. What better way than in a show and tell?
